Safer NYC Subways

This petition had 62 supporters

So far this year (2017), 44 people have died as a result of falling onto or being pushed onto New York City subway tracks. Last year (2016), the total number of subway fatalities was 50 people. However, nothing has been done by the Department of Transportation to actively prevent these fatalities from occurring besides the occasional announcements over loud speakers to "step away from the platform." My goal is to reach NYC politicians and affect change in the subway system for a safer, more secure commute by having barriers between the train tracks and platform edge. Gates along the platforms that slide open automatically with the train doors could save countless lives. As a concerned New York City commuter, I want to keep myself and others as safe as possible and prevent unnecessary tragedies from occurring. Join me in the movement to change NYC subway systems for the better. Every signature counts!
